Delicious. I did it 95% as written. I only cut the cream to about 2/3 of a cup and I used some chopped up homemade onion rings as "croutons" which worked well. Not sure why I wouldn't just pull some of the onions from the first batch instead of caramelizing. That seemed excessive. Loved the flavor of the soup. Will make again and look forward to my leftovers.
This is one of the most amazing soups I've ever tasted. Rich, flavorful and satisfying. An elegant but simple supper with some crusty bread. Worth the time.
